Review: La Riche Directions!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

When I had pink dip-dyed hair I got comments on saying how nice it was & how much you beauties like it. So today I thought I’d share with you what I used & how I got pink dip-dyed hair! 🙂

Before I get into this post I just want to say that the colour intensity obviously depends on the colour of your hair already. As I dye my hair a lighter blonde anyway I had a good light base for the colour to go on to. However, if you have darker hair you may have to bleach it before hand to get an intense colour pay-off!

La Riche Directions Hair Colour is a semi-perminant hair dye, it comes in 34 shades which can also be mixed, so there’s a colour to suit EVERYONE 😀 The hair colour I chose was ‘Carnation Pink’, it is a muted pink colour, which does fade well as it becomes more of a candyfloss pink.

Although this is a semi-perminant hair colour it did last very well in my hair, it probably stayed quite an intense colour for a couple of weeks before fading. Saying this though, I only was my hair 2-3 times a week. So if you’re someone who washes their hair everyday it’s obviously going to fade a lot quicker.

How to apply

I hold my hands up, the first time I had it done was by my twin sister’s friend at uni. So when I re-dyed my hair a month or so later with the same pink I just followed her method of doing it. This is how she achieved the dip-dyed look…

  1. Brush through the hair well so there’s no knots.
  2. Seperate the hair into two down the centre & tie a bobble at the point you want your dip-dye to start. Make sure the bobbles are even as this is the guide to wear you’ll apply the colour.
  3. Ensure the loose bits of hair are knot free & liberally apply the hair dye so each & every piece of the loose hair (below the bobble) is covered in dye.
  4. Then leave the colour on the hair for about 30 minutes. This ensures enough time for the product to adhere to the hair, the colour I used sort of stained my hair as it still hasn’t fully come out after a few months.
  5. Once 30 mins is up wash out the colour. I found it best to rinse the majority of the colour out by sticking the pigtail under the tap. Once the majority of the colour is out hop into the shower & rinse until the colour in the water becomes less & less. It may not become totally clear but that’s because its semi-perminant so you’ll most likely see a bit of colour in the water the next few times you wash your hair.
  6. Lastly, dry your hair (blow-dry or air dry totally up to you) & enjoy your new style 🙂

This was after I had dyed my hair first time. As you can see it’s very bright, but how cool did it look? I LOVED IT 🙂

By the way, I didn’t purchase my hair dye from the website as you have to buy it by the box & I only wanted one tub. I bought mine from eBay, just type ‘La Riche Directions hair colour’ into the search bar & a ton of different colours will appear – also it is so much cheaper from eBay.

Have a lovely day beauties xo

Lots of Love Natasha ❤
